Emmanuel Adebayor has called on his Arsenal side to "come out like a killer' next season and win a trophy.

The Togolese striker threw his team lifelines twice last week with goals at Liverpool and Manchester United. However, both times, the home side came back to win and end Arsenal's hopes in the Champions League and Premier League respectively.

In fact Arsène Wenger's side have led in the last three domestic games against their top four rivals and both legs against Rafa Benitez' men in Europe but failed to win any.

Although Adebayor sees advancement overall he believes his side need to find a lethal element to win the trophies their football has merited.

"Last season we finished fourth so we have made a lot of progress and we deserved something," he said. "I still believe we are still one of the best teams in the world. We know how to achieve things and we know how to play football.
"But next season we have to come out like a killer to do something. We have the quality. We know that because we always seem to score first."

Also, the 24-year-old scoffed at suggestions Arsène Wenger's position was under question following a third season without a trophy.

"Arsène is a great man and a great manager," said Adebayor. "He has achieved a lot of things with this club. For sure he is going to be here. He has a vision to bring a lot of good players to this club like Alex Hleb, Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Eboue, Cesc Fabregas and William Gallas. They are his players. So, for sure, we will win something, no doubt about that.We will never give up. As a player I am not ready to give up. We will play until the end of the season."
